Grandma's Brown Bread

This is one of my favorite sweet breads.  My grandma always served this brown bread around the holidays.  I think of her every time I make it :)  -Kristin

1 rounded full cup of raisins
2 cups water
  • Boil 10 minutes and then let cool.  When the raisins are almost cooled add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons molasses
1 egg
3 Tablespoons melted shortening or butter (her original recipe calls for lard)
1 cup sugar
2 3/4 cup flour
  • Grease loaf pans and bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes.
